Design Parts as Near Rectangle as Possible – An Assembly Example

An electrical cabinet design was originally designed with two parts as shown below.

The assembly contains a T-shaped non-rectangular part. To improve nesting quality, T-shaped part is redesigned into two near rectangular parts. This simple redesign improves material utilization and hence scrap area (Gray shaded) is less and remnant area is more (Pink shaded) as shown below.
A saving of 4.583kg is observed for just two assemblies. For customizing nesting application in your CAD modeler, contact
